At our Dockside reception the air conditioning did not work and Dockside only provided us with one fan for our two rooms. The heat was so extreme guests left the reception sick, did not eat the food and we had to finish the reception early. Additionally, they allowed external contractors to enter the room to remove chairs whilst our guests had their belongings belongings unattended in the room. Don't have your reception here!

Dear Sally, We just received our wedding highlights video and it prompted me to thank you all again for being so amazing in the lead up to our wedding and especially on the day! Never did I imagine that you would go to the lengths that you did to ensure that everything was absolutely perfect! From changing our floor plan 15 times to helping me pin up my train and feeding me canapés on the wedding day! You are all so amazing and our wedding would not have been the same without you! We have received so many compliments about the venue and the food and have been recommending you to all our friends.

Thank you for everything ! last night Dockside was amazing. You have all been so wonderful and easy to work with in helping bring the whole wedding together You were on the ball and made everything so easy for me. I also enjoyed the moscato so much, so that was such a beautiful gesture from your team. I hope all my little cousins and friends get married there when it's their turn! Thank you for everything!

Just a quick note to say THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!! You completely exceeded our expectations on our special day! The venue looked amazing and the staff were wonderful. Our guests loved the food and wine and there was more than enough of everything. So lovely to see you both at the Wedding as well. We have recommended Dockside to many of our friends and would certainly use your venue again for any future functions.

I wanted to send out a big thank you to all your team. I cannot tell you how much we appreciate how much you guys supported us - on the day & all the months prior. You made our life so much easier just knowing you had a handle on things (especially when I did not)! Even just showing up on the day and waiting in the bridal room for our entry and seeing Sally and yourself co-ordinating the night, it was a weight off our shoulders! You and Sally were amazing :-) Everyone could not stop raving about the beautiful location, the food, the service - Perfect. We honestly wished we weren't running around as much as we were on the night so we could stand still for a little while & just enjoy the view! Our friends are getting married at your lovely reception in February 2014 and we can't wait to take it all in again. I cannot wait to see the photo's from the night! We would not hesitate to recommend you to all our family and friends! P.s. Everyone thought our food was Master Chef! Send our thanks to the chef! x

Our daughter Roz married Edward Harriman on December 9, 2012. I have just nominated Dockside for Australia Bridal Industry award. There was no room to put an affirmation of why I’m happy to support a nomination. Put simply, yourself and the team prior and on the day was “magnificient”, the venue was presented outstanding, the food has been complimented on many times both on the day and since. The flexibility staff showed on the day as we waited to see what the weather was going to do was simply outstanding. The crew at Dockside made our daughters and new son in law special day, absolutely superb. As parents of the bride, we could not have expected the superb experience if we were even capable of imagining it.
